Haul and Review: Etude House Hair Silk Serum


Hi Everyone!

I’ve been posting too many things about my life lately so I wanna go back to the topic that I’ve always been passionate about: BEAUTY. Last december, I went on a mini beauty hall in Etude House! The Etude House Eastwood branch is one of the biggest branches I’ve been to and I enjoyed trying their products. I also like that their products now have descriptions to help inform customers of the basic functions of each product. I used to dislike going to Etude House stores because there were too many products without descriptions. I can’t read Hangul so I didn’t really bother looking around. Props to the new and improved Etude House! :)

Here are the items that I hauled:

I’ll be reviewing these items one by one therefore I’ll be dedicating one post per item! Watch out for them. :)

 To be honest, I personally focus more on my makeup than my hair. On days when I have time, I flat-iron my hair but on most days, I either let it down naturally or tie it up when it’s too messy. As a beauty blogger, I wanted to widen the scope of my reviews and branch out more into hair products. I really enjoyed browsing through the hair products at Etude House. I ended up buying two hair products and I will be reviewing the Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum for today.

The main problem I always encounter with serums is them being too oily which results in making my hair feel heavy. I tried this serum out in the store and really liked the effect it gave on my hair.

What I love:

  • I love the fruity floral scent!
  • The packaging is very cute and girly.
  • The product is quite thick but isn’t too oily. I hate it when my hands feel oily after using serums.
  • You only a small amount of product. 2-3 pumps should be enough.
  • The pump is very efficient and does not release too much product. (It would be such a waste if it released too much product.)
  • It makes my overly treated hair look shiny and healthy!
  • It’s reasonably priced at PHP378 a bottle.
  • It contains a fair amount of product at 60ml per bottle.

What I don’t like:

  • I only wish that these come in smaller bottles because it adds a lot of weight to my daily hand bag. My bag contains a lot of items so it would be better if this was smaller. :)
  • do not put on too much serum on your hair
  • apply it on your hair from the middle section of you hair. (DO NOT APPLUE FROM THE ROOTS. It will make your hair feel heavy)  :)
Overall  Recommendations 
I really like this hair serum! Despite my small issue with the size of the bottle, I do not regret buying this product at all! I recommend this to those who want to make their hair look more shiny, glossy and healthy!

    Hi, Maxie!

    What exactly does this product do?
    Is it just a volumizer or for treatment?

      It is a serum. Basically, serums are used for dry, frizzy, and over-treated hair. Of course it’s not equivalent to a hair spa treatment but it helps make your hair look more healthy and shiny. :)
